An American Exodus: A Record of Human Erosion
by Dorothea Lange & Paul S. Taylor
Reynal & Hitchcock, New York, 1939. First edition. Hardcover. One of the best books to come out of the FSA experience, that shows the grim resolve and the conditions in the late 1930’s dust bowl. Text by Taylor and powerful black and white images by Lange. A good copy with some wear in a good dust jacket with chips to the spine ends and the corners, a small tear to the rear of the jacket near spine. This is the ‘first’ issue with the Mein Kampf blurb on the rear panel of the dust jacket and with dark blue cloth boards. Despite the flaws a very nice copy of this important book that is uncommon in any jacket.
